About Jeff

Learn Jeff’s areas of practice.

Jeff was born and raised in North Dakota. In 1986, he received his undergraduate degree in Business Administration from the University of North Dakota. In 1989, Jeff received a Juris Doctorate degree from the University Of North Dakota School Of Law. While in law school, Jeff was elected Moot Court Board President and was awarded the Order of Barrister. This honor recognizes, on a national basis, graduating law students who excelled as students in written and oral advocacy activities and competitions. Jeff is highly rated, by his peers, in both legal ability and ethical standards.

Jeff is admitted to practice law in the State of North Dakota, United States District Court for the District of North Dakota, and United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit.

Jeff has extensive civil and criminal trial experience, as well as appellate experience. Jeff specializes in litigation, with an emphasis in personal injury, criminal defense, and consumer and business litigation. He has been active in representing groups of plaintiffs in class action cases. He has been certified by Courts to be co-lead counsel in class action cases in Federal and State Courts.

In addition, Jeff has also represented defendants in some of the largest narcotic cases in North Dakota’s history. Jeff has defended individuals in criminal jury trials where such individuals were accused of, including among other crimes, murder, attempted murder, rape, narcotic crimes, bank robbery, violent crimes and driving under the influence.

Furthermore, Jeff has been active in representing injured clients whose lives have been devastated. Jeff represents family members who have lost a loved one because of someone else’s negligent actions and individuals whose lives have been devastated with, among other injuries, traumatic brain injuries (TBI), amputations, severe burns, facial scaring and spine injuries. Jeff understands that the consequences of a major accident can effect a person’s life for years. Medical treatment can be staggeringly expensive, while injuries may lead to debilitating pain or other chronic problems. Jeff has been helping injured people obtain financial recovery for almost 25 years. Jeff is committed to each client’s success in court or in negotiations with insurance companies.

Jeff thrives on hard work to help clients resolve problems. Additionally, because he is able to draw upon a wealth of litigation experience, Jeff brings a perspective and vision to cases that attorneys who focus in one narrow area of law may lack.

There is a number of professional organizations that Jeff is an active member of, including being a Charter Member of the Eighth Circuit Bar Association, Founding Member of the North Dakota Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and Life Member in the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.

I retained Jeff Bredahl in a case that I needed an attorney who knew their stuff and was certain and knew they would win my case. From the moment I walked in he told me right away, we got this case. I will never forget how during the 5-6 months during the whole process, Jeff and his team were always there for me. During the process Bredahl and Associates were the only ones there for me. You definitely were not just a client. He also keeps everything short and to the point of what you need. He doesn’t try to just get money out of you like other attorneys. During my trial, which was 3 days long, he stood out and did and AMAZING and outstanding job! After receiving my non guilty verdict, I had numerous jurors come up to me and say whatever you paid for your attorney was well worth it, I’ve never seen an attorney so good and prove their case like he did. Bredahl and Associates know their stuff and will not stop fighting for their clients. They are exactly what an attorney should be! I was referred to Jeff Bredahl by someone else I knew and they said he’s a beast in the courtroom so I trusted them. Not long after being told that I was also told that by numerous other people and eventually got to see for myself. Every penny I paid was well worth it! I now have a custody issue and have came right back to him and hired him again as I know he will get the job done because he is the BEST attorney you will ever find....hands down! I honesty could never thank him and the rest of his team for all they have done for me and for the work they have done and continue to do. If you want the BEST of the BEST and to win any court proceeding; Bredahl and Associates is where you need to go and you will surely be more than happy with the results and treatment you get. I will NEVER hire another attorney again! HUGE THANK YOU to JEFF BREDAHL and his Team!! I PROMISE you will not be disappointed. #teamBREDAHL

More than an attorney!!!
I retained Jeff Bredahl with Bredahl and Associates as my attorney in 2018. I have nothing but respect and admiration for the work and extra steps that Mr. Bredahl, as well as everyone in that office did for me personally and my case. The work ethic and true dedication that Jeff Bredahl and his firm put into making sure my case was taken care of to the best of its possibility was amazing! Jeff always gave 110%. Bredahl and Associates makes you feel like your more than just a client. They make you feel like family, and it all starts with Jeff himself! Jeff is one of a kind and he will always be more than just an attorney to me!

Best trial attorney in North Dakota!
Jeff was the best attorney I could have hired. From his diligently picking my jury to fiery cross-examinations. He stands out against other attorneys especially during his opening and closing arguments. The best part of my case was my not guilty verdict! I was also told by other clients he's the only attorney to have won a federal criminal trial in Fargo
